From a bottle bought at Summit Beer Shop in Mount Holly, NC. I first had this a while ago and have it the same rating as I would now. This is a very, very good brew that should be taken very seriously. Carmel, vanilla and a little dark fruit. And of course the cherry on top is the bourbon. But I think it still finishes a little weak or I would have rated even higher.

This is one of the best barrel-aged brews I?ve had to date! An orgy of rich flavors!!! Starting with aromas of light scotch, drink this brew a bit on the warmer side to experience nuances of caramel, dark fruit, and spiciness with rich, oaky, bourbon warmth throughout. An excellent sipping brew! At 11.2% ABV, this creation will kick your ass as it seduces your taste buds! profile - July 18, 2018
Lovely warm smells of single malt scotch Oaky bourbon barrels smoke sweet caramel and roasted malts a bit of earthy spice it?s a kickback super made to excite the pallet

Nice taste all the flowers coming out from tart to finish. Not a fast drinking beer but a good drinking beer.

Nice flavor. Once again Founders impresses me. Nice bourbon sweet flavor but not too sweet for me. Higher ABV. I don?t know if I would call this a wee heavy though. Id definitely get it again.

Tastes like a liquid bourbon ball cookie. If you like bourbon you?ll really enjoy this one. Drink it whilst eating your Christmas cookies! profile - December 8, 2017
